For most of our trips, a minimum OW Certification will do (please do not forget your C-Card), however, we also recommend having a minimum number of 30 dives to get the most out of the diving experience, otherwise new divers may find some dives challenging and could opt to skip the dive.
Tubbataha Reefs Most dive sites are wall dives with occasional little to strong currents that allow divers to drift along the wall. In some sites, there are more to see on deeper levels. A minimum OW Certification is allowed for this trip, but our recommendation is to be an Advanced Diver to fully get the most out of this destination.
The Visayas Most of the dive sites included in the Visayan trips are considered shallow and have little or mild current, making it suitable for all levels of certification and is actually ideal for beginners. However, an AOW Certification is required for thresher diving in Monad Shoal, Malapascua.
Apo Reef and Coron Crystal clear waters and shallow dives make Apo Reef an ideal destination for beginners. There are some dive sites however that are beyond beginner level depths and occasionally experience mild to strong currents, which beginners could prefer to skip. An OW Certificate is acceptable for Coron as there are a number of excellent wrecks resting in considerable shallow depths available for exploration. The deeper and more challenging ones, on the other hand, are recommended more for AOW and technical divers.
PG, Verde Island, Anilao A minimum OW Certification is allowed to join this trip, however some dive sites in PG and Verde regularly experience medium to strong currents, and caution is advised at all times.
